    Hi,
    About a year ago I picked up 6 JBL N28s to use as a 6.1 setup for my basement, I've got the R/L Fronts and Surrounds on 20" stands and the two centers angled down on my seating position. I've been generally happy with these speakers but I'm starting to get upgrade fever. I think that my surrounds are probably too low since the tweeters are at ear level and I guess they should higher? I've been looking at an Athena Setup for replacement amd since FutureShop here has the Athena ASB-1s on for $179 Canadian I wanted to pick up a pair to audition in my system, I figured I could rotate them around in different positions and if I decided to replace the whole thing they would probably end up as my surrounds on wall mounts.

    Bottom Line: Would the ASB-1s sound better than the JBL N28s (first series) or would this be a big waste of time? I know there are lots of JBL & Athena fans so I'm hoping you'll all chime in.

    Thanks
